Another reason to support Buzz for first Vice Chair:The State Ethics Commission is going after Mark Taylor thanks to Buzz.
The State Ethics Commission decided Thursday that it had enough evidence to consider allegations that former Lt. Gov. Mark Taylor’s gubernatorial campaign took illegal contributions from a company and failed to fully identify other donors.
The commission dismissed more than 40 other complaints against Taylor, who ran unsuccessfully against Gov. Sonny Perdue last year.
A former lawyer for Perdue helped draw up the complaints against Taylor.
The commission found probable cause to hold a full-scale hearing on 10 counts, most of them alleging that Taylor didn’t adequately identify contributions from political action committees. Taylor’s campaign listed the PACs by commonly known acronyms in some cases.
